Florence + The Machine Performs “Jenny Of Oldstones” from “Game of Thrones” at Form Arcosanti Festival
- English alt-rock band Florence + The Machine performed their Game of Thrones-inspired track “Jenny of Oldstones” live for the first time at Arizona’s FORM Arcosanti festival.
The song was released on April 21st and was created for the second episode of the eighth season of “Game of Thrones”. It is the only new original track for season eight. A few days later, Columbia Records released a compilation album “For The Throne: Music Inspired by the HBO Series Game of Thrones”, featuring SZA, The Weeknd, Travis Scott, The Lumineers, Ellie Goulding, X Ambassadors and more.
“What I wanted to do with this song was keep it as sparse as possible,” Florence Welch said of the track. “It does get a bit more rousing at the end, but I really wanted to retain the simplicity of the melody and the lyrics that they sent me, because I found them so moving. If I had known the history of the song, I would have been like, “[Expletive], we need fanfares, and you’re going to have to get a dragon on here somehow.” I might have — as I can do sometimes — overblown it. So I’m glad I didn’t know then, but I’m glad to know now. You want the beauty and the fragility in there as well. I would have made it too big, if I had known just how [expletive] big it is!”
